Urgent Manhunt for Abdul Ezedi Intensifies After Discovery of “Corrosive” Containers

In a significant development in the ongoing search for Abdul Ezedi, the suspect in a horrifying chemical attack in Clapham, the Metropolitan Police have revealed the discovery of empty containers labelled as “corrosive” at an address in Newcastle. This discovery comes as part of a nationwide manhunt following the incident on January 31, which left a 31-year-old woman and her two daughters, aged eight and three, severely injured.

The Metropolitan Police, coordinating the search for Ezedi, who is accused of launching the attack, have been scouring through dozens of calls and collaborating with various agencies including the British Transport Police, Northumbria Police, the National Crime Agency, and Transport for London (TfL). Searches conducted across two addresses in East London and three in Newcastle have been part of the extensive efforts to locate Ezedi.

The found containers, now undergoing forensic testing, may have held the substance used in the attack, raising concerns about the availability and use of such dangerous materials. The police have released shocking photos of these containers as part of their appeal for information from the public.

The victim of the attack, known to Ezedi, remains in a critical but stable condition, suffering from what are likely to be life-changing injuries. The Metropolitan Police have emphasized the severity of the situation and the importance of public vigilance in spotting Ezedi.

Commander Jon Savell highlighted the last known sighting of Ezedi at King’s Cross Underground Station on January 31, urging the public to report any information that could lead to his apprehension. The police stressed that Ezedi should not be approached and that sightings should be reported immediately by calling 999.

The Metropolitan Police’s spokesperson reiterated the dedication of police and partner agencies to tracing Ezedi and ensuring the safety of the community. The public is encouraged to stay alert and contribute any relevant information that could assist in the manhunt.

As the investigation continues, the community remains on high alert, hopeful for the swift capture of Ezedi to prevent any further harm. The police’s appeal underscores the critical role of public assistance in such cases and the collective effort required to maintain public safety.
